I know this question has been discussed before, but was just wondering if anyone had had the PPP upgrade and had any opinions on it?

I've found a Scooby dealer who will discount it to £1300 for my 07 FXT and given that it would be warranty approved it certainly has that going for it.

I will hopefully be able to get away without any insurance increase as well, but my real question is, is this a safer bet than going down the specialist remap, new exhaust route etc.

I'm not really bothered about sourcing all of these things individually, so the convenience of the PPP appeals.

Thoughts?

It's the least effort and warrantied route, If you're going to do that and nothing else then it's worth it. Expect a *small* premium on resale too.

The warranty is valid until June this year, so its not the be all and end all.

However, I am also a bit conscious that for resale it might be a bit more palatable to a buyer to have the 'Subaru approved' PPP than the unknown quantity of other aftermarket mods.

But then again, £1300 is still a lot of cash!

I don't think I'll be doing any further mods than this......but the longer I spend reading the threads on this board, the more I get drawn in!

Have gone through this decision. It depends if £500 will make a difference to your wallet or in the long run when you come to sell(remap and exhaust £700). For me no warrenty and the fact I won't be selling for a long time means I'll take the cheaper route.

Have it on a 58-plate FXT.

Sounds nice, exhaust looks like a quality piece of S/S.

Certainly torquier through the rev-range.

An exhaust and remap specific to your car running on 97/99 RON fuel will almost certainly get more power.

Expect a small bump up in insurance premium - most seem to note the %age power increase and then adjust accordingly.
